Gift Wrapping... OUTSIDE the Box! ♥♥

Hey guys!

So I got really excited after wrapping my friend's birthday present (her birthday is today, she's a leap year baby!)   so I thought I'd show you guys. Look how pretty and sparkly!

Okay, so maybe I should explain a few things...

NOTD;; Coral Fixation + I Actually Use Twitter Now!! ♥♥

Hey everyone!

Quick sidenote, I've begun actually using my twitter account! I made one a while back but Twitter was dark and scary and I didn't really feel like it. Now I've figured it out and I'm looking to make some more twitter friends!

Come check me out, @Rivuletsbeauty :D

Over this weekend, I was lucky enough to have the long weekend off and Sunday/Monday with the house to myself. What's more, since it appeared I was having a weekend in, I thought, what a marvelous window of opportunity to give water marbling another college try?

Good thing I had all weekend.

But nonetheless, I persevered and finally came through the other end with... these!

They're definitely more subtle than the other marble I did, which you can check out right here!, but I love the effect.

Alas, yes, this took me forever yet again, but I took my time with it and worked through my issues, with my awesome kitten keeping my company and cheering me on, I came out the other side with pretty fingers (:

Share the Love Sunday;; What Kimmi Did Next!! ♥♥

Hey guys! Today I'm coming at you with a blogger that's newer to me, but right from the get go, I've liked her style a lot. Today I was trying to think of who to feature for SLS, and she posted a new OOTD (Which you can see right here)that blew my mind and made me decide to feature her!

What Kimmi Did Next is a style and beauty blog that showcases Kimmi and her two adorable puppies, Mojo and Maggie. Her unique taste and outfit combinations are edgy and different, and I love just about everything she puts up.

Meet Kimmi (and Mojo)!

You should definitely go look into her. She's got a great writing style and is very fun to read.

Her Twitter:

Her Facebook:

Until next time everyone, much love!

NOTD;; Acid Wash Denim Inspired Nails! ♥♥

Hey all! This time around I got inspired by acid wash denim, and really wanted to do some nail art that spoke to that theme. In my musings for inspiration, I found a technique on youtube that involved layering your polishes and then streaking away at them with polish remover to get an acid washed look. Too cool for school, so obviously I had to try it out! Look at these puppies...

So neat, kind of like a tie-dye effect on the nails, and it's something anyone can do! Read on to learn more!

Valentine's NOTD;; We Found Love... & A VDay Collabo with April Bee! ♥♥

Hey everyone!

I've had these nails on for a few days now, and I LOVE THEM. I was dying to post this NOTD but I couldn't, because it's actually a Valentine's Day Collaboration with my girl April! I did a Share the Love Sunday on her, you can check that out right here! She's super cool and we get along swell. She did a gorgeous Valentine's Day inspired makeup mask tutorial that I will link here when it's posted.

But omg, LOOK at these nails!

his nail is inspired by Rihanna's song We Found Love she did with Calvin Harris. It's kind of a techno-alternative style for Valentine's Day, because I didn't feel like doing the lovey-dovey thing. You can check out the video tutorial >>>HERE<<< , or you can click on to read about how I did these nails!
